Neighborhood
“Kødbyen - or the meat packing district in English - is a local favourite. Whether it’s for a great meal, a beer on the sun or a full night out, this is where to go. If you’re in the mood for a great and greasy burger, try Tommi’s Burger Joint. If you’re hitting the dance floor, NOHO might be the answer. Whatever your mood, there’s numerous bars and restaurant at your disposal here. ”

Restaurant
“Relay, in Jægersborggade on Nørrebro, is proud to deliver a 'no nonsense' gastronomic experience. A creative cuisine free of the cultural heritage of traditional restaurants that go after the Michelin stars, and at the same time without being labeled as one of the usual fine restaurants, brasseries, or bistro restaurants. Relay again became a star in the Michelin Nordic Cities 2019 Guide and was ranked 39th in the list of 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' in 2017. Relay has also been named the world's most sustainable restaurant in 2016. The chefs have traveled around the world to find gastronomic delights and mouthfuls that turn their legs away from guests. The wine list also consists of a large number of good European wines. The atmosphere at Relay is unpretentious, warm and inviting and easy to feel at home in.”
